|This is a fun update of classic arcade side-scrolling beat-em-up games
in modern 3rd-person 3d action. You play first as a rookie female
cop Darci Stern who frequently spars with a group of street thugs named
the Wildcats, who start getting involved in increasingly dangerous criminal
activities; kidnappings, bombings – unusual behaviour even for street thugs.
She meets a mysterious vigilante named Roper who gives her clues to aid her
investigation of the Wildcats and offers warnings that they are more
dangerous than they appear and that they are getting more organized,
stronger and have plans to take over Union City. The second part starts
with a mysterious and brutal murder pointing to the mastermind behind the
Wildcats. He threatens the city with missiles and even black magic.
You have about 12 missions
with various side quests available too if you choose in a beautifully
rendered near-future city threatened by criminal gangs. You must fight
many enemies in hand-to-hand combat and also with weapons you may
pick up, and there are also vehicles to operate. This has a nice fighting
system and is worth playing.
